On a political blog I read, a post was talking about books.

Someone stated that 50 Shades of Gray was a rip-off of Twilight.

Further down I read that Twilight was a rip-off of Inuyasha.

I literally LOL'd at this.

What do the people here think?

Was Twilight a rip-off of Inuyasha

Well, saying 50 Shades of Gray is a ripoff of Twilight is kinda accurate (didn't it start off as a fanfic?)

I'd say any similarities between Twilight and Inuyasha are coincidence though.

You can't rip off something lacking originality. (50 shades vs twilight)

Never seen Inuyasha, so can't comment on that.

idk.. could be coincidence or could be a rip off... why dont you make a time machine to go back in time and work with who ever created all those things too really see if it was a rip off or not...

lol I do see the similarities now that you mention it. That makes me wonder if Stephanie Meyers is an anime/inuyasha fan... and if she said the "dreaming the whole story" thing as a cover up for being influenced by Inuyasha.

Twilight is a poor rip-off if it was.

I was utterly disgusted with twilight after reading it.

Inuyasha is my top five anything.

The love triangle would be Inuyasha x Kagoma x Koga?

Koga, unlike Jacob, never had a chance. Or are they meaning Kikyo x Inuyasha x Kagome?

Actually just link to this blog, I really want to see why they would even mention twilight and Inuyasha in the same sentence.

I like Inuyasha, it was one of my earlier series I watched when I was younger, but werewolf vs. vampire lore is older than it is and that is what the terrible Twilight books are based on.

I think people hate twilight just because it's "cool" to hate twilight

If you read shoujo a lot, you'll notice that most of the plots in shoujo manga are very similar to twilight. I start to cringe when some retarded rape smut like Airen is a "better love story than twilight" just because the juxtaposition was between __________ and twilight.

Like, are you retarded?

doesnt matter both 50 shades and twilight are just terrible books

as for ripping off inuyasha....i guess i can see that in a reverse way with inuyasha being hung up on both kykio and kagoma to the point where its annoying sometimes but other then that i fail to see the comparison. seems a little insulting to inuyasha lol

HAAH!!!

Well in all honesty, people say anything is a rip off of anything, that has some sort of sliver of similarity.

Is twilight like Inuyasha? Give me a break... They're NOTHING alike.
That's like me saying Pokemon is a rip off, of Godzilla.

50 Shades? Never read it. Sounds pretty boring for the most part.

i think the funniest thing i read was, back when the Wolf Man remake came out a few years back lots of Twilight fans cried that it was a ripoff.
